“But they said to him, ‘Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.'” ~ Mt 14:17 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: As Christians, we can feel overwhelmed by the cultural meltdown that is taking place before our very eyes. The cultural war seems to be occurring on multiple fronts: family, marriage, sexuality, and the dignity of human life. In the Gospel today, the Apostles seemed overwhelmed with their situation. How were they going to feed over five thousand people? A very daunting task, but they were not without any resources. They did have five loaves and two fish. Jesus was able to take their gifts and multiply them for the benefit of many. It is a daunting task to evangelize a culture that does not respect the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death; especially when we are outnumbered by the thousands as were Jesus and the Apostles. But do not feel overwhelmed. Even though the gifts that we bring to the Pro-Life table may seem insufficient to change a culture of death, Jesus will multiply our gifts and feed many. * Dr. Rich Reich is the co-founder of the LIFE Group Devotions and the National LIFE Runners Team.
